Jack up the front of the car and support it safely on jackstands. Remove splash shield.
Slide a drain pan under the differential drain plug. Loosen and remove the plug and drain the fluid. Move the drain pan under the transaxle oil pan, remove the drain plug (models equipped) or the oil pan and drain the fluid. The transaxle fluid cannot all be drained by just draining the oil pan.
Remove the pan retaining evenly and allow the fluid to drain. Remove the pan.
The filter may be serviced at this time.
Use a new oil pan gasket and install the pan. Install and tighten the bolts evenly in a criss-cross pattern.
Replace both drain plugs (if equipped). Lower the vehicle. Fill the transaxle with 4.2 pts of DEXRON®II fluid. Start the engine and allow it to idle for at least two minutes. With the parking brake applied, move the selector to each position ending neutral.
Add sufficient fluid to bring the level to the lower mark. Check the fluid level after the transaxle is up to normal operating temperature.
